Deadwood: What's the Latest on the HBO Follow Up Movie?

Deadwood: What's the Latest on the HBO Follow Up Movie?

It wasn't necessarily a delay. "I'm thrilled, I imagine we'll shoot that this year".

While Game of Thrones fans finally got confirmation that the final season of the HBO series won't be airing until next year, there's reason to take heart.

Game of Thrones is will return to Sky Atlantic in 2019. During HBO's portion of TCA, HBO president Casey Bloys confirmed that the network is looking at fall 2018 for production to start.

"We're not using the final season to launch a new show or anything like that". In fact, Game of Thrones was breaking its own ratings records throughout Season 7. The final season is going to be as spectacular as possible. "They're perfectionists and this is the soonest it can come back at a level of quality that they are comfortable with", HBO programming chief Casey Bloys tells EW.

"We have some really talented writers working on them", he added. Not everybody is on the same schedule, so I've seen different versions of different things that are potentially exciting. I don't have a timetable when we're going to make decisions on anything.

Bloys also spilled another major update about the five Game of Thrones prequel spin-offs, which are now getting developed in the writer's room. HBO will also premiere several original movies, including an adaptation of Fahrenheit 451 starring Michael Shannon and Michael B. Jordan. (Laughs.) Though probably more likely one. "We want the final season of Game of Thrones, being the special event that it is [to stand on its own]".

Now, Bloys has revealed the reasoning behind the delay: the showrunners want to take their time in creating the biggest, most visually-spectacular episodes to date. When asked how many will actually get made, Bloys said, "I'll do anywhere from zero to five!". He confirmed none will feature any existing characters, although "there may be [familiar] bloodlines" linking the new stories to what fans have already seen on the present show.
